October is going to be a busy month for public meetings about transportation. The city of Los Angeles is hosting a set of them on the draft master bicycle plan while Metro will gather input at a series of meetings about the Wilshire bus lanes.

The seldom talked about Crenshaw Transit Corridor project could bring a light rail line from Wilshire and La Brea into South LA and over to LAX, connecting with the Expo and Green Lines and possibly the Purple Line if that gets extended (see a PDF map here). L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas is a major supporter of the project, even setting up a webpage encouraging people to participate in the upcoming meetings, which begin tomorrow and are listed below:
